Kaithal has a lesser known history- the city dates back to the ancient times of Mahabharata & Ramayana. It was earlier called as 'Kapisthal' meaning 'Abode of Kapi' as the place is traditionally connected to Lord Hanuman. Today, I am thrilled to explore the undiscovered food culture of this historical town of Kaithal. The old city of Kaithal has a plethora of archaic food joints that remain the city's favorite.
Saini Samose Wale
Near Colony, Gate No. 3, Karnal Road, Kaithal
This place has found great popularity with the locals for their fresh, piping hot samosas, bread pakoras, etc. that they serve with delectable imli & pudina ki chutney. You may have to wait for your turn as there is a long queue of orders, but trust me their samosas are totally worth it. The flaky top layer of the samosa and the aloo filling with paneer and kasuri methi makes it the best samosas you could ever find.
